Default John Madden

John Madden was in New England to announce a football game one weekend
when he noticed a special telephone near the Patriots' bench. He asked
QB Brady what it was used for and was told it was a hot line to God.
John asked if he could use it. Brady replied, 'Sure, but it will cost
you $200.' John scratched his head, then thought, what the heck, I
could use some help picking games. He pulled out his wallet and paid
$200. John's picks were perfect that week.

The next week, John was in Indianapolis when he noticed that same kind
of phone on the Colts bench. He asked what the telephone was for and
Manning told him, 'It's a hot line to God if you want to use it, it
will cost you $500.' Recalling the previous week, John pulled out his
wallet and made the call. John's picks were perfect again that week.

Last weekend, John was in Pittsburgh , when he noticed the same kind
of telephone by the Steelers' bench. He asked Ben Roethlisberger, 'Is
that the hot line to God?' Roethlisberger said, 'Yes, and if you want
to use it, it will cost you 50 cents.' John looked incredulously at
Roethlisberger and said, 'Wait a second,
I jus t paid $200 in New England and $500 in Indianapolis is to use the
same phone to God! Why do the Steelers only charge 50 cents?'
Roethlisberger replied, 'Because in Pittsburgh, it's a local call...
Welcome to God's Country.'
